People are wringing their hands this morning, conflicted about Obama’s speech last night. Some say it was pitch perfect, others are disappointed. Obama has a pattern going in regard to accountability. Some people are more “threatened” by this pattern than others. In my opinion, the underlying controversy can be summed up in one word: Accountability. This is a discussion about the pattern of accountability as it relates to Obama’s presidency and why some of his constituency might be getting anxious.

As a therapist who specializes in working with personality disorders my perspective on the Israeli Palestinian might be considered offensive to some, but my challenge is to see if others see potential truth and potential solution in my observations. My career began as a sexual assault counselor, a psychiatric technician at a psych hospital, and then a licensed mental health counselor specializing in the therapy of Dialectical Behavior Therapy. (DBT) My clients were generally men and women who had been horribly abused as children, some qualified for the diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder, while others simply shared some of the symptoms on a continuum. This therapy was created to treat Borderline Personality Disorder, but has been found to be effective in treating many different problems. http://www.behavioraltech.com/downloads/dbtSummaryOfData.pdf What does this have to do with Israel? I think DBT could help.
